I have a macro that creates a macro feature in a part file then creates curves through XYZ and makes those curves sub-features of the macro feature. The issue I have is that if the part file is closed the next time it's re-opened the curves are no longer sub-features and I don't know why the sub-feature assignment is lost. Has anyone experienced this issue or know of a fix? I'm using theMakeSubFeature.

A friend of mine created an assembly with solidworks 2014 on his computer. He asked me to help him with the video presentation of his project, but i own the 2017-2018 student version. It will be possible for me to open the file, or the two versions are not compatible?

Anybody want to weigh in on using a shared toolbox in PDM vs. having a toolbox on each person's client? We have 4-5 installations of Solidworks using a license server. What are the pros and cons? Seems like having a shared toolbox would be a good thing but I have been learning that sometimes setting stuff like this up complicates management of installations when it comes to upgrading to next years version.

Is there a way to make "zoom to fit" ignore origo? I usually model my parts to assembly, which origo is far away. So the parts origo is there too, so now when I make s sketch and hit F button it zooms it so far that it includes origo too. And it is not good.

There are often requests that SOLIDWORKS should have more MS Word-like functionality for notes. We added some capabilities, such as uppercasing, better control over spacing between paragraphs, better indention behavior, etc. In the continuing effort to improve functionality in SOLIDWORKS, please state what additional functionality from MS Word that would you like to see in SOLIDWORKS annotation note tool.

Finding the value added resellers is easy. Getting the contact information is not that difficult either. I know that when I attend a rollout my var tells me about all the test and certifications that their techs go threw to be able to work for them.

My friend and I are preparing a project in which we are constructing a gripping mechanism for fishing reels. The mechanism utilizes a clamp which closes on the fishing rod and is planned to be held in place by the friction of the material lining the inside of the clamp. Our question is - what would be a good, flexible, lightweight, waterproof and (as much as possible) durable material with which to line the inside of the clamp, so as to achieve a strong grip (one which can likely stand the
